Everhour is a product of Weavora Consulting LLC, a privately held software company based in Minsk, Belarus. It was founded in 2010 by Mikhail Kulakov. For 3 years, they were looking for the perfect time tracking and reporting tool for their small team. Using spreadsheets, time tracking, and project management applications were not good enough, so they decided to create their own solution. Everhour was launched in 2014, and since then has been used not only by the company, but also by their clients. It is continually being refined through customer feedback and suggestions, as well as in line with the company’s vision and users’ needs and expectations. New features, such as timeline view and recurring expenses, are in the works.
